Redskins and Saints plan season-ticket package changes

Thanks to another successful season, the New Orleans Saints will raise season-ticket prices for 2019.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that most tickets will increase by $8 per game. The Saints also raised their ticket prices last season.

The Washington Redskins on the other hand, following another disappointing campaign which resulted in a higher proportion of empty seats than any other NFL franchise, will create a new ticket incentive program.

The Redskins are keeping season ticket prices at the same level for 2019 but adding a new membership loyalty program known as “Redskins Gold”. The new Gold program will include dedicated stadium entrances and concession lines as well as other discounts.

“Think of it like TSA Pre (a program in the United States that allows travelers to avoid certain screening lines in domestic airports),” Chris Bloyer, Redskins’ senior vice-president of operations and guest experience told The Washington Post.

“There will be a Redskins Gold entrance or entrances for season ticket members at each gate. There will be the same thing at a select number of concession stands, mostly at the larger concession stands that have the larger lines.”
